September community party: Every September, the Griesbach Community League hosts a jam-packed party that promises something for all ages. The location of this event was at Perron-Berger Park and, more recently, moved to Maple Leaf Park. This community party has included an amazing art walk, bouncy castles, balloon artists, face painting and even a giant climbing wall. For the adults, there is a live band, beer gardens and food trucks. It’s all free for community league members (except for the beer). Have a great idea for the next community party? We want to hear it: firstname.lastname@example.org
Griesbach adult events: Past events have included a Spring Fling party and a Halloween Howl. These adults-only events are held at a neighbourhood pub and are a great opportunity to meet other grown-ups whole live nearby.
Griesbach Easter egg hunt: In 2010, Griesbach resident Lisa McCulloch and her family started what has become a popular Easter tradition. Playing the role of Peter Cottontail, volunteers hide Easter eggs around one of the neighbourhood lakes for the children to gather and exchange for goodies. Bring Your Own Basket. The lake location varies by year.
Bottle drives and community cleanup: Twice a year (Spring and Fall) we hold a bottle drive to raise money for capital projects. We also hold a community cleanup, which is especially popular among families who wish to instill a sense of community pride in their children.
Outgrown it sale: With Griesbach’s population of young families, this giant indoor garage sale, held in the MGG School gym, is a great place to sell your kid’s gently used clothes and toys or to pick up some deals on previously owned items.
Remembrance Day: On November 11th, please join us at Patricia Park for an annual Remembrance Day ceremony held by the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. We are extremely proud to have this important event take place in the heart of our community.
